This is the 2nd time we've stayed at this hotel and would certainly do again. Arriving on the Sunday afternoon we were welcomed with a lovely cuppa, which after a long drive is very welcome.

We had a great stay at Summerhill Hotel, the owners really know how to look after their guests and run a very clean, professional and friendly hotel that is well located and a pleasure to stay at. Given the opportunity, we would return without giving it a second thought.

The owners and their charming daughters made us feel very welcome. The location is ideal for the Paignton beachfront or cycling to Torquay. Breakfasts were excellent and the room very comfortable. This place certainly deserves its No 1 rank

This hotel is very clean we were made to feel very welcome and service was excellent. Room was small and en-suite dated but really clean. Water pressure in bathroom was very low and took along time to draw a bath. Outlook was not great. Food was really good however. Good hotel but the location was not ideal for us.

I stayed in this beautiful hotel again and I certainly wasn't disappointed with my choice of where to stay. The food was excellent as it was on previous visits. Everything was to the same high standards and to top it off the weather was good too.
